Societal Aspects of Dementia

Societal Aspects of Dementia

The first ministerial WHO conference on global action against dementia in 2015 stated, "We need to invest more in research to develop a drug, but also to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and the support of their caregivers."

This LIAS project does not focus on developing a cure, but on maintaining the best quality of life for people with dementia in interaction with their environment.

How can we organize our society in such a way that we can improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their caregivers? This includes the organization of prevention and care, but also the general attitude of society towards dementia.

For complex challenges an interdisciplinary synthesis can be more important and more relevant than technical and disciplinary expertise. Global problems require an international synthesis.
